    In response to the story Cleveland Browns face a Miami Dolphins team that is glad to hit the road, cleveland.com reader thuperbowl thinks it's a bad idea to overlook Miami. This reader writes,"I've heard a decent amount of 'writing off' of the Dolphins this week on the local sports radio stations. This team is not a bad team. Forget that they are 0-2, because it was against top notch teams. I hope the Browns win, but I'm not counting on it. If the Browns play well, limit penalties and turnovers, they can be in the game in the 4th."http://www.cleveland.com/browns/index.ssf/2011/09/dont_write_off_the_dolphins_-.html

    That Browns fan has more Fin optimism than most fans right now. Browns 20, Fins 13.

    I've never swayed from rooting for my Fins in my 37 years of existence but I'm almost wondering if a win by the Fins is a bandage over the wound delaying the inevitable.

    This is a must win for the phins..No has ever started off 0 and 3 and made the playoffs..

    Even if Miami wins I doubt they can make the playoffs.

    They should win this game, but I said that last year and they lost in a humiliating way.

    i have no confidence. the players are bad. not sparano. sparano doesnt play on the field. players blaming others for their lack of ability. injuries? cmon, this offseason was a creampuff. blame game begins and chowderhead and JT leading the way.

    You are correct. Only 3 teams have made it since 1990. 92 San Diego Chargers (who were 0-4), the 95 Detroit Lions, and the 98 Buffalo Bills.

    Hell, the Seahawks proved last year that you're not out of it until you have 10 losses!!

    I was checking out one of the Brown's forums and one guy said "We can be remembered as the team that put the nail in Tony Sparano's coffin!"

    LOL - I kinda hope he's right.

    should, could, might, blah, blah... prove it. beat the snot out of the Browns, then go to SD and make a statement and get your season back on track. otherwise, I dont want to hear it.

    I heard that the Dolphins have started off 0-2 four of the last five years.that is a trend that must come to an end next year.

    You're thinking of the 1992 Chargers. They didn't go to the Super Bowl that year. We blew them out in the second round of the playoffs 31-0.

    Miami's defense is built to play against that type of offense. If the Browns score more than 14 points, Sparano should be fired.

    The Jets won their 1st game in OT then proceeded to lose 4 consecutive (including 3 blowouts) & made the playoffs in '02 where they blewout the colts 41-0, believe it or not this is a long season & anything is possible.

    We'd better ****ing win!

    I'm not planning on driving 3+ hours north, and sitting in the ninth row in the fugging Dawg Pound (with all the abuse involved) - to walk out with a loss.

    If our team plays lights out in the cooler weather they should move the team to LA during the bye week. We can play in the coliseum or Rose Bowl until the new stadium is finished. I do not give two craps what teams or what coaches did what in the past in that swamp for weather down there. You have to be sub human to play good in that humidity. IMO, not worth it and may pisss some people off but I believe Ross has something to do with the stadium committee out there. take the stadiium Mr. Ross and give Rosky a piece of the team. If the high profile entertainers you have as 5% partners moans, pay em off. I am sure you can find some high profile entertainers out in LA that would kick in for at least 10% of the team.

    GET EM OUT OF SOUTH FLORIDA MR. ROSS, PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE.

    Well now I finally have an understanding of what's going on. The problem is that our defense is built to play against the BROWNS. If Sparano had only built our defense to play against the PATRIOTS or TEXANS, we could have won! It darn sure isn't built to cover TE's..
    Once again TS, youre not cutting it!

    Please for the love of God though... knock it off with the off man coverage? Have the corners be physical! or atleast play near them!
